DeMarco Murray increases workload in Thursday's practice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was listed as limited in Thursday's practice, but he said he did a lot more than he was able to do Wednesday, reports the Dallas Morning News. Wearing a special glove with padding to protect his surgically-repaired left hand, Murray participated in some team drills.

"It’s good," Murray told the paper. "I feel good."

Murray was asked if he'll play Sunday against the Colts, if the decision is left up to him. "I’m a very competitive person and I want to help this team out as much as I can," he told the paper. "I’ve had two good days and we’ll see how it goes."

Owner Jerry Jones said he was encouraged that Murray, the NFL's leading rusher, is "so aggressive in his thinking about playing."

Murray underwent surgery Monday to fix a broken bone in his hand. If he sits out, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar would rotate at tailback. Dallas is favored by 3 over the Colts at nearly every sportsbook.

Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray practices, but how much?
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray participated in the early part of practice for the second straight day Thursday, but it wasn't yet clear if he joined team drills after watching those Wednesday, reports the Dallas Morning News. Murray's left hand was wrapped.

He had surgery Monday to fix a broken bone in his hand. If Murray can't play Sunday against the Colts, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar would share backfield duties.

The Cowboys are 3-point favorites over the AFC South champs.

DeMarco Murray to wear protective padding, not cast, if he plays
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

If Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray plays less than a week after undergoing surgery, it will be with protective padding on his left hand, not a cast, reports the Dallas Morning News. Murray went through individual drills Wednesday wearing a glove enforced with a hard plastic shell.

"I think we need to see something where there’s a comfort level we all have and certainly a comfort level that he has," coach Jason Garrett told the paper. "Carrying the football is an important responsibility. You have to be able to do it."

Dallas is a 3-point home favorite over the Colts on Sunday. If Murray can't play, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar will share backfield duties.

Randle is averaging 7.0 yards per carry and would be the favorite to start, but he hasn't gotten more than two carries in a game since Week 10. Dunbar is a better receiver than Randle and would handle most of the passing downs.

Murray underwent surgery Monday, one day after breaking a bone in his left hand. He leads the NFL with 351 carries for 1,687 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns.

Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray practicing two days after surgery
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was "going through drills and catching passes" at Wednesday's practice, reports NFL.com. ESPN.com reports Murray participated in all individual drills despite having his left hand wrapped.

"I think we need to see something," coach Jason Garrett told reporters. "So we'll take it day by day and see how he progresses."

Murray underwent surgery Monday to fix a broken bone in his left hand. He leads the NFL with 351 carries for 1,687 yards and 11 touchdowns. He wasn't expected to participate in team drills as the team eases him back.

If the Cowboys hold out Murray on Sunday against the Colts, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar would carry the load. Randle is averaging 7.0 yards on his 34 carries and would handle most of the early-down work. Dunbar is an excellent receiver (16 catches, 207 yards) who would play mainly on third downs and in hurry-up situations.

Owner Jerry Jones said Murray likely will be a gametime decision. The Cowboys are 3-point favorites over Indy at most Las Vegas sportsbooks.

Cowboys RBs Joseph Randle, Lance Dunbar 'ready for whatever'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With the status of DeMarco Murray (hand) up in the air, Cowboys backup running backs Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar are preparing for a larger workload for Week 16, if necessary, according to the Star-Telegram. Both backs have totaled 328 yards on 60 carries on the ground this season.

"We're approaching it the same way," Dunbar said. "We haven't gotten into all that yet. Tomorrow is the first day we get to practice and stuff. I'm pretty sure it's going to be the same way. You always have to be ready just in case your number is called. If my number is called, I'll be ready if he's not able to go."

"We don't know what the opportunity is yet because he hasn't been ruled out but I'm ready for whatever," Randle said. "I'm itching big time. I feel like I can get job done definitely if they ask me to do that. I don't want to let the team down. This is a huge game for our season. I'm going to be fully ready to go."

It remains to be seen which running back would get the start if Murray can't play.

Dallas is a 3-point favorite at home against Indianapolis on Sunday.
